Fair State Giantsbane Double Stout. 8.6% ABV, 50 IBU. Fair State Brewing Co-operative, Minneapolis, MN.
Darkest blackness, utterest richness, slim brown head.
In the nose: Big cocoa, sweet, lightly fruity, lovely. Espresso notes. Nice.
In the mouth: chocolate, deep malt flavors, lush, coffee-ish. Yum. Roast, very tasty, very deep, very rich. I'm satisfied, I don't know about you. Mmmm. Yeah, I said it before and I'll say it again. Sweet to an extent, then dry, and all the while delicious.
From the website: Giantsbane is a Double Stout brewed with dark and roasted malts. Black, roasty, and hefty, we kettle sour a portion of the wort prior to the boil to provide the classic stout "twang."
